Guy Ritchie will be bringing the world of Aladdin to live-action life later this year, and a new TV spot puts the focus on Aladdin's rise from rags to riches. As you can see in the new spot above, Aladdin is used to making the bets of a given situation, even when that means breaking into the palace. Jasmine is shocked to see him at her door, but as you can see she is also intrigued, asking him how he got past the guards. He admits it was a challenge, but he made it work, though Jasmine still doesn't think he should've done it.
Jasmine says "You cannot just break into a palace like you own the place", but Aladdin responds "if you don't have anything you have to act like you own everything." We're not sure that's the soundest logic, but you know what, he sold it with conviction, so we're going with it.
We also see more of Aladdin and Jafar's interactions as he pitches the Cave of Wonders to him as well as a snippet of a scene where Aladdin is surrounded by guards only to be backed up by Will Smith's Genie using a show of force. We then see another sequence where Aladdin and Genie are in the center of a bunch of fireworks and another closeup of Smith's Genie showing off his gauntlets, jewelry, and tattoos.
You can check out the TV spot in the video above and the official description for Aladdin can be found below.
